Description

Description

This project will examine multiple modal assessments of temperament, including parent report, observation measures, and electroencephalographic (EEG) frontal asymmetry (neural marker of temperament) as early risk markers for autism. The project will be assessing infant siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (high-risk infants) and infant siblings of children without ASD (low-risk infants) at 6 and 12 months of age in order to test if high-risk infants differ from low-risk infants on both parent, observation, and EEG measures of temperament. Temperament measures at 6 and 12 months will be examined in relation to ASD risk symptoms at 12 months.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 1LA. Identify behavioral and biological markers that separately, or in combination, accurately identify, before age 2, one or more subtypes of children at risk for developing ASD, and evaluate whether these risk markers or profiles can improve early identification through heightened developmental monitoring and screening by 2014. IACC Recommended Budget: $33,300,000 over 5 years.
